Edi Gathegi, who portrayed one of the evil vampires, Laurent, in the Twilight Saga franchise is joining X-Men: First Class as Darwin. Real name Armando Munoz, he has the power of “reactive evolution,” which allows him to adapt to any situation or environment. Sort of like, should he be sucked into the vacuum of space, he doesn’t need oxygen. Or if it’s incredibly dark, he gains night vision and so on.
I think this is interesting that they’re putting in a somewhat new mutant in the movie when this film is supposed to concentrate on the early adventures of the X-team, but I guess I should have guess considering Fox’s cavalier attitude towards x-continuity.
So readers and x-fans, what do you think of the new addition?
